Plans: Mostly Greek family festivals with music and wine.
Approved: Nov. 17 by San Joaquin County Planning Commission; appeal filed by David Lucas, Fred Donald and Craig Miller on Nov. 28; scheduled for Board of Supervisors hearing on Jan. 10, but it was delayed because Kapiniaris revised the plans; appeal denied by Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

Stating that its vote must be based on the current winery ordinance — and not possible revisions — the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 Tuesday to allow Kapiniaris Vineyards to construct a winery on Davis Road, just south of Turner Road.
Winery owner David Lucas and neighboring property owners Fred Donald and Craig Miller filed an appeal in November, hoping that the Board of Supervisors would overturn the county Planning Commission's approval.
